1996 Dodge Avenger ES 2dr Coupe


Fell in love with styling 1st
time I saw it. Bought new 2nd model
year. 1st 3 months was in the shop
10 times. Auto transmission shot at 40K
miles. Entire front end replaced at 56K
due to shotty controller arms (the
front end broke away from the main
structure of the car!). Changed
thermostat 2xs & always needs new
brakes. FM radio & CD player no longer
work. Lots of interior cosmetic
problems now make the car look
junky. There is a leak inside that no
one can find & everytime it
rains there is a puddle on the front
passenger floor board. I will drive
this piece of junk until it rusts away
to nothing just to get the $$ I put
into it for repairs.

Best Features

Love the styling & the radio/CD/tape worked & sounded great while it lasted! The handling has always been great, except for the small turning radius.

Worst Features

Dodge, if you ever want to improve this product, make sure the transmission is reliable. I would love to buy the new Stratus, but would never take the chance. Also make sure the interior & audio system can last the life of the car!
